Surface treatments for springs: extend the service life of mechanical seals

In the article posted today, we are going to pay special attention to one of the essential element of mechanical seals: the spring. This compound is responsible of many aspects extremely important for the right performance of the seal and, by extension, must be the object of attention and evaluation. Specific coating treatments are one of the main points to maintain a good state of the spring and, by extension, to extend the service life of the mechanical seal. There is a large variety of industrial treatments for springs of mechanical seals so choosing the appropriate solution is a matter…

Food certification in the manufacture of mechanical seals

Mechanical seals in contact with food must meet the demanding standards applicable to the sector, such as the FDA or EC 1935/2004 as two of the most relevant. How do these certifications apply to mechanical seals? EC 1935/2004 Compliance is obligatory, and it controls the transfer of substances from the materials from which the mechanical seal has been manufactured to the product with which it is in contact (milk, juice, chocolate, jams, etc.). The aim is to guarantee that all materials in contact with food are safe and meet the same quality requirements. FDA (Food & Drug Administration) The North…

Cartridge Mechanical Seals – Auxiliary Elements

In order for a mechanical seal to work correctly, it is essential to guarantee adequate lubrication and refrigeration. In some applications, this is achieved thanks to the use of a secondary fluid, when the primary fluid does not possess the necessary properties. The provision of this additional fluid involves the inclusion of a secondary circuit, which may be open or closed, and may or may not be under pressure. In the case of opting for an open circuit, the complexity and installation costs are very low, but fluid consumption (usually mains supply water) can become a problem, above all due…

Grinding mills for paint production

Grinding mills for paints or pigments require special sealing systems, as these products are extremely abrasive. The grinding mills can be either vertical or horizontal. The grinding takes place in a closed chamber in which very hard pellets of various oxides, glass and silicates, among others, are added, which are agitated via an axle with “fingers” where the pellets collide and the required texture is achieved. These mills, both vertical and horizontal, have a pump with a mechanical seal which pumps the paint. This technology is used for the production of high-quality paints and varnishes. This mill grinds paint pigments,…

LHE heat exchanger

Some mechanical seal applications involve working at high temperatures, either with respect to the fluid product, or when it is the secondary fluid or barrier fluid. In these cases, it is possible that, in order to control the process, a high thermal dissipation capacity is required. For those applications, Lidering has an advanced liquid refrigeration system, the LHE. This is a multi-tubular heat exchanger designed in accordance with API 682/ISO 21049 standards. They are often used for API 21, 22, 23 or 41 assemblies, with the barrier fluid flowing via the interior multi-tubular circuit, and a second refrigeration fluid, for…

The Dry Seals sealing system as a solution for the chemical industry

The chemical sector involves working with aggressive powdered substances, these substances erode fundamental parts that ensure the proper functioning of the equipment; these include screw conveyors, rotary valves and internal agitators. The abrasive nature of these substances is coupled with the difficulty of having to maintain a specific and suitable level of humidity for the vast majority of applications. This removes lubricating or coolant fluids of any nature from the equation, and this is where the Dry Seals come to the fore.   Which specific applications do we recommend the Dry Seals sealing system for? As we indicated above, the…
